Langer scores 3rd 200

So Langer now has three double centuries, yet his official record at:-

http://uk.cricinfo.com/db/PLAYERS/AUS/L/LANGER_JL_02002071/

will continue to show only 50s and 100s

Why can't these records record the numbers of 150s and 200s???

Impressive list of players. The name that jumped out at me was
Gavaskar's - 3 double tons against the Windies. Not bad considering the
strength of the teams he played against (apart from during WSC days).
27 tests at 65.45 is not bad at all. To average 70.20 from 13 tests
played in the West Indies even more so. Pity India only one 3 of those
27 matches though.
